gypsytea-pomegranate-rose.jpgThis blend matches fair trade, organic, high-grown green tea with rosebuds and pomegranate flavor, but its the rosebuds that really take center stage here. The aroma and taste on the tongue is primarily flowery, but pleasantly-so - not overpowering or artificial-tasting at all. I was a little disappointed that the pomegranate flavor wasn't more pronounced... I think I made out a little tinge of it in the aftertaste, but that was about it. I didn't sugar my tea, though, so I imagine a dash of sweetener would have helped to develop and draw out the flavoring.

The tea itself is pretty standard grade for what you'd find in a teabag, though tea connoisseurs who are interested in organics and free-trade will be happy to know that this company trades only in both. Zhena's Gypsy tea is also a certified Woman-owned company through WBENC. (Zhena is not a marketing invention - she's a real person, the original founder of the company.) You can learn more about Zhena, as well as her company's fair trade and social responsibility programs on their web site at www.gypsytea.com.
